The purpose of this module is to increase your skills and knowledge on how to understand and define catchments.  

During the session, we will cover the following topics: 

  • What is a catchment?  
  • How does a site relate to the catchment? 
  • What is the relationship between catchment and physical scope in the AWS Standard? and finally 
  • How does an AWS implementer define the catchment or catchments relevant to the site? 

The AWS Standard General Guidance includes a Special Section on Catchments with additional detail on this important topic.

To support your learning from this training module, you can download a copy, along with the AWS Standard, at a4ws.org, or alternatively you can access the AWS E-Standard and Guidance (an online interactive version of the AWS Standard 2.0 and its Guidance).
